School Locks Kids In Padded Room

A friend of mine posted the video at the bottom of this article to her facebook page and I found it a bit surprising that we are locking special needs kids in rooms with padded walls in our public schools. It just doesn't sound right to me, and based on most reactions I'm guessing you probably agree. However, hearing the school's side of the story I don't think it is quite as bad as it seems. You can get both legitimate sides of the story here, or you can get my take on the issue in the video below. I found some of the things the mother being interviewed said to be a bit odd, so I figured it was time for another Stevil Rant.

Interestingly enough, if you would like to have your own padded seclusion room at home, you can purchase supplies here on the World Wide Web. The site also offers padded furniture for your padded room, including a padded coffee table which I think is going a bit far. You don't want coffee in a room that is designed to keep a special needs kid safe and calm him down. The coffee only threatens both of these concepts. And if there isn't going to be any coffee, than a coffee table is just taunting the kid.

  • Watered Down Travel Ban

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

  • Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
